Summary: After about three hours of fooling around with this camera, I discovered the following: (1) The instructions packed with the unit and the same on-line are almost useless; (2) The camera will not work with Windows 8; (3) With Windows 7, D-Link requires that your router send the video up to a D-Link server, which then sends the video back down to an app on a Windows 7 PC; (4) I was trying to use the camera on my large motor yacht, where the internet is connected over a...
Summary: I am writing this mainly to warn potential buyers of the issues that I have encountered after several weeks of use. Here are some details about my setup. I am running a Netgear 6300 wireless router and minus the update I needed for the camera, setup was a matter of linking the two wirelessly. Once you register directly on Dlink's website, you were able to access the camera via online. I later downloaded the app on my iphone 5 and found several issues.

Summary: Even after rotating the camera lens to adjust the focus, still not good image quality. too grainy, which won't change with focus. I have two 932L cameras and they are both better than this device. PROS: setup was relatively easy if you follow the written directions. Pan is nice feature.
keeps losing the network connection, not as clear as I hoped

Summary: The specs say that it has 720p resolution, but when I view it on the iPhone or on the computer, it doesn't really look that clear. Also, I had to reboot it a couple times over a two week period because I could not connect to the camera via my iPhone. This would not be practical if we were out of town since there would not be any way to reboot it remotely.
ok camera that could be better if the company wanted to improve on the software

Summary: The company support is limited, if camera is placed on the celling the software will not flip the image, also the software for androi does not always work. I got this camera to monitor my baby from work, and most of the time I can not log on to the website. This camera is good; the software that goes with is really poor.
Summary: I bought this camera thinking that would be as DCS-5635 without zoom, but it isn't. Poor software. I don't believe that D-Link can do a software like that. Patrol function and Pan function doesn't work, it not cycle, only execute once and stop. I did a firmware upgrade do v1.01 and nothing change. How D-Link can do a mistake like that. I sent some e-mail 's to D-Link support two weeks ago but I didn't receive any reply.
Cool but software needs work. Get some anti flicker on this thing!

Summary: Pros Looks cool Has a ton of bells and whistles Pic quality is good if you are on the same network the device is connected to. Has a remote for if you are local. has a headphone output so you can yell at prople on your property but i have not figured out how to use that yet and I have not tried lol. Great rotational range Night vision works well should have a 6db gain antenna instead of standard little nonsense.
Summary: I have been wanting the D-Link DCS-5222L camera since it was first announced and waited months for it to be available. I purchased the DCS-932L last year and loved it, but I really wanted something that panned and tilted, so this was exactly what I was looking for. Since setting up the DCS-932L was a breeze for me, I thought this one would be the same deal. It was the total opposite of that.

Summary: wer eine ip-kamera mit pan/tilt/zoom sucht, hat zwar eine gigantische auswahl, aber nur wenige geräte im bereich bis 200 euro können von den leistungen her mit einer aktuellen webcam mithalten. die d-link 5222l ist so ein kandidat. sie verspricht pan/tilt/zoom bei einer auflösung bis 1280x720 punkte. eingebaut ist weiterhin eine infrarot-led, mit der nachts in s/w aufgenommen werden kann.
